Key audit matters:
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgment were of mostsignificance in our audit of the financial statements of the current period. These matterswere addressed in the context of our audit of the financial statements as a whole and informing our opinion thereon and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. Wehave determined the matters described below to be the key audit matters to be communicatedin our report.
|Sr. No. Key Audit Matter |
|1 Revenue Recognition |
|(refer Note. 1 related to Revenue) |
|We focused on this area as a key audit matter due to the risk of incorrect timing of revenue recognition and estimation related to recording the discount and rebates. |
|According to the financial statement' accounting principles revenue is recognized at a point in time when the control of the goods is transferred to the customer according to delivery terms. Due to variation of contractual sales terms and practices across the market and the pressure the management may feel to achieve performance targets there is a risk of material error. |
|Auditor's Response |
|To address this risk of material misstatement relating to revenue recognition our audit procedures included: |
|- Assessing the compliance of company's revenue recognition policies with applicable accounting standards including those related to discounts and rebates. |
|- Assessing the revenue recognition processes on showroom and online sales. |
|- Assessing the adequacy of relevant disclosures. |
|2 Inventory valuation |
|(refer Note. 1 related to inventories) |
|Inventory were considered as a Key audit matter due to the size of the balance and because inventory valuation involves management judgement. According to company's accounting policies inventories are measured at the lower of cost or net realizable value. |
|Auditor's Response |
|To address the risk for material error on inventories our audit procedures included amongst other: |
|- Assessing the compliance of company's accounting policies over inventory with applicable accounting standards. |
|- Assessing the Inventory valuation processes on showroom. |
|- Assessing the analyses and assessment made by management with respect to slow moving stock. |

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial statements. As part of an audit in accordance with SAs weexercise professional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit.We also:
? Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.

Under section 143(3)(i)of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whetherthe company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such controls

If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion.Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue asa going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

We describe these matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulationprecludes public disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances wedetermine that a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverseconsequences of doing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interestbenefits of such communication.
